"Influencer" / spammer aboard DUO
I'm posting to alert legitimate DUO users and admins: Someone using the handle Ann334292 is spamming multiple threads with a message about marriage infidelity and an agent who can fix such matters.
So far I've counted 10 threads (more are likely as I continue browsing) contaminated by this message / messenger. Easy to recognize because it's always completely out of context with the topic of the threads. All showing the same time of posting (UTC 10:00 on Friday Jun 21) so likely a bot, not a person.
Please downvote anytime you see this message in any thread, so it can be made to go away.
The DUO forums are usually a joy to browse, cuz they're almost always on topic and informative. Help keep the forums that way . . .

Unfortuantely, this won't help anything.
Downvoted comments (e.g -3) are not hidden anymore.
Probably an update to the "discussion forum software" which broke that functionality.
Downvoting will also not stop a bot to permanently add new comments to other existing threads.
The only way to stop this is by filing an abuse report....or to hope that any forum moderator might notice it.
Please, submit an abuse report via
instead of giving more attention to the spammer.
